"The pro's are they really teach you real life things you need to be aware of in the industry and they give you everything you need for the learning experience for the most part, the cons are the school is ridiculously expensive and half way through the program you run out of money leaving you helpless unless your are rich or can be lucky enough to receive scholarships."

"The graduate program I am attending is beneficial to me in ways that will help me develop the skills that I intend to procure for self-employment or personal business ventures. I enjoy the challenges that the curriculum has to offer. As a writer I am looking for new ideas and ways to express my inner-most thoughts. This Creative Writing Program helps me to explore and expound on my ideas and execute my work process. I don't feel that there are many cons dealing with Full Sail University. I have always received prompt responses when dealing with faculty and staff in departments such as admission, financial aid, as well as student success services. So far my professors have been most helpful in making sure myself and my classmates understand the curriculum and that we come out on top of our class."

"Full Sail University is an awesome entertainment industry institution. By rating it on graduateprograms.com gives me privilege and honor. I am elated to be associated with either of them. The decision to attend school on the graduate level is scary and graduateprograms.com makes that easier and more of an informed decision. I know it was the best choice of my life. Thanks graduateprograms.com and Full Sail University."

"DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! It is a complete waste of time and money. They will tell you anything and show you all their shiny toys just to get your money. The truth is that in the real world no one has the money to drop on the sound boards that they let you practice on. The financial aid program is one of either you have the money or you don't, they do not help find anything for you. If you have the money and time to waste on an expensive school in an expensive city than this is for you. If you want a quality education at a resonable price, stay far far far away from here. If you passionate about music, get the gear and the book yourself. That's exactly what I remember about the classroom, reading manuals in silence. Not worth anyones time."

"I'm in the Entertainment Business Masters program at Full Sail University. I have learned more useful information in two months here than in 4 years of undergraduate work at another university. The faculty is great and extremely helpful. Most of the faculty has worked and currently works in the industry so the information and knowledge you are getting is coming from people who have been successful. Plus they also are able to help you network through their connections."

"I really enjoy being at Full Sail, there are more opportunities here than I can take advantage of (a good thing). If you are determined and work hard, it will be noticed and you will be rewarded. I wish there was student housing."

"Even though I just started the program, I have been treated with the utmost dignity, respect, and care from the minute I inquired about the program, through the enrollment process and even into my first classes. The professionalism of the faculty and staff at this school is unparalleled to any institution I've attended."

"FSU offers innovative degree programs including Entertainment Business Bachelors and Masters Degree, Film Production, Web Design, Fine Arts, and my field, Internet Marketing Bachelors and Masters. Instructors have a proven track record in the courses they teach. The university has state of the art equipment for every class. Online degree students get a MacBook Pro with all of the best software has to offer. Technology was definitely a priority in the schools design. I joined after clicking on an ad, but most students attend because of a word of mouth recommendation. FSU stays on top of their important industries to make sure their "real world education" continues to be relevant, and state of the art. Although I love my laptop for online courses, but I am jealous sometimes because students at the campus attend a true technological marvel every day."
